These Gluten Free Candy Bar Cookies are a fun way to use candy that is leftover from a holiday (like Halloween, Easter, Valentine’s Day, or Christmas).
And for those who eat only gluten free desserts … well, have at it!
You make the bars in 3 layers. First, you bake the cookie base.
Once that comes out of the oven, spread dollops of peanut butter on the top and then sprinkle the surface with chopped candy.
Spoiler alert: these cookies are best after you chill them in the fridge.
But whether at room temperature or cold, they are hard to beat.
Prep time: <15 minutes
Bake time: 15 minutes
Makes 12-16 dozen bars, depending upon how you cut them
1 ½ cups shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 egg whites
1/3 cup granulated sugar
½ cup chopped white chocolate (or white chocolate or vanilla chips)
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup candy any type, chopped
Special Baking Tips for Gluten Free Candy Bar Cookies
You can use packaged eggs whites in this recipe or separate eggs yourself (and save the egg yolks for another recipe, like scrambled eggs.) Either kind of egg whites works well to hold together the cookie base ingredients.
Cookies will be fun to look at when you use some pieces of colorful candy in your toppings.
